The Slc26 gene family encodes several conserved anion transporters implicated in human genetic disorders, including Pendred syndrome, diastrophic dysplasia and congenital chloride diarrhea. We previously characterized the TAT1 (testis anion transporter 1; SLC26A8) protein specifically expressed in male germ cells and mature sperm and showed that in the(More)
The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is present in mature sperm and is required for sperm motility and capacitation. Both these processes are controlled by ions fluxes and are essential for fertilization. We have shown that SLC26A8, a sperm-specific member of the SLC26 family of anion exchangers, associates with the CFTR channel(More)
The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a Cl(-) channel physiologically important in fluid-transporting epithelia and pathologically relevant in several human diseases. Here, we show that mutations in the C terminus of the first nucleotide binding domain comprising the latest beta strands (beta(c)5 and beta(c)6) influence the(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a major inherited disorder involving abnormalities of fluid and electrolyte transport in a number of different organs due to abnormal function of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein. We recently identified a family of CFTR activators, which contains the hit: RP107(More)
BACKGROUND CFTR is the only ABC transporter functioning as a chloride (Cl(-)) channel. We studied molecular determinants, which might distinguish CFTR from standard ABC transporters, and focused on the interface formed by the intracellular loops from the membrane spanning domains. METHODS Residues from ICL2 and ICL4 in close proximity were targeted, and(More)
